Senseless Attraction by Lila Rose


*YA novel*

For 15yrs and above.

Three parts. Two points of views.

Never one to care what others think, seventeen-year-old, Mt. Henry High School student, Skylar James, is content with it that way. That is until she's assigned her history partner, rich-boy Kane.

Being invisible at Rushton High School, is just how seventeen-year old Alexandra Harmony likes it. That is until she's asked to tutor bad-boy Tristan.

What does it take to make opposite yet parallel lives collide

Senseless Attraction.

Aw! I love a good YA and it's been a while since I read one. And I'm so happy I came across this one! This story is told in dual POVs: Skylar and Alexandra. First part is all about Skylar and Kane. The second part is with Alexandra and Tristan, while in the third part, these characters have a meet-and-greet.

The rich guy and the Goth girl  

These two. I swear, they are perfect together! Skylar is sarcastic and funny and she's not afraid to speak her mind. She's blunt and honest to a fault. Kane finds this out when she expresses her feelings regarding his girlfriend.
Skylar's friends are crazy but supportive of her and her ways - even though Jessie constantly questions why she's friends with them. Besides her being funny and sarcastic and blunt, she's also stubborn and she judges Kane by his life style; his friends and even his family. It all starts with a simple History assignment and them becoming History partners for the story to unfurl. Kane is really nothing like the typical rich kid, thank God! He's sweet and polite and of course that he's hot, to boot. Oh and whatever he wants? He takes. Much to Sky's horror, so to say.

The geek girl and the bad boy 

As sarcastic and crazy as Skylar is, Alex is the total opposite. She's way too polite for her own good and she never talks back to anyone, she never stands up for herself. Namely, when she's being bullied by Tristan and his friends. But all that starts to change when she's asked to tutor Tristan in Maths. It's weird at the beginning but Tristan surprised me in a pleasant way. I admit, I didn't know what to think of him. He was a bad boy, a player and a bully. But I really wanted to know what his redeeming qualities were so I gave him a chance. Didn't regret it.
But it's a little bit more complicated because, while little Alex starts to develop feelings for him, so does her best friend. And Alex is not egotistical and she always puts others above herself. 

The third part is where they meet and Sky and Alex become closer and closer. The former tries her best to push Kane away, while the latter wants Tristan close but he's pretty much a no-show.

But it all works out fine and it's a big HEA at the end of it. This story may be shorter but it's sweet and funny and it does have certain morals one can learn from, by the end of it. I loved how these different people, characters constructed pretty well, got together and simply clicked. It didn't matter that one was poor, while the other was rich; or that one was quiet, while the other was wild. They found a common ground and decided to stay on it.

I think you already figured out that I loved this book very much, hence why believe it deserves five stars. I only hope to read more great stories from this author. She's definitely one I'll follow closely.
